LowRx - Discount Prescription Card V2 - App Review

In deference to you, as well as the hardworking developer, this is a review of the just-released version 2 of LowRx. This is sufficiently different to the original to warrant another visit; don't worry; you are not suffering from déjà vu when you read this.
Here's an App that not only uses Passbook but saves you money. This is the little brother of MedMory that was reviewed a little while back, so also enables you to save on prescriptions but without the reminders.

Now for the ACIDS test:

The App is extremely straightforward.
At first use, you are invited to allow LowRx to use your current location. It is a good idea to allow this (although you can always go to 'Settings' later to review your choice), as (especially of you are not at home), the information will help find local pharmacies. You are now prompted to enter your name and 10 digit telephone number
Following on from this you have a choice of three options:

1. Add to Passbook with location
This is the recommended option as not only are your details entered onto Passbook but, additionally, you will receive an alert when you are getting near to a pharmacy.

2. Add to Passbook no location
This is identical to the first option but you will not receive any alerts.

3. Add to Home Screen only
This merely provided a shortcut to your Rx Card via the App, so no use of Passbook, and no alerts.

From within the App you have access, at any time, to pharmacies either in your immediate vicinity, or you can search for other dispensaries at specific addresses. This information is viewable either on a map or as a list, complete with links to a detailed, step by step, route, and even the ability to directly dial the number by pressing the telephone icon (very neat).
In addition there is a prescription estimator enter the name of your prescription drug and the quantity; you are then presented with a target price for the selected drug, together with generic versions (if available), as well as alternatives within the therapeutic class. This has the additional use of your being able to discuss with your prescriber if a less expensive alternative could be substituted. It is important to pick a drug that appears on the list as you enter the name. You can save further money by taking advantage of coupons, as and where these are available.
You might also get lucky and win the $200 sweepstakes which looks like it is going to get started next month. The detailed rules are in the App.
All you need do is present the 'Event Ticket' from passbook, or from within the App to the pharmacist to benefit from low-priced medication.

The App is not only free but also devoid of advertising.

If you are in the USA, it would seem churlish to refuse low-priced prescriptions. If you are outside the USA, the pharmacy locator works (although you will need a USA iTunes account to download the App).

The App is straightforward; just remember that 'available' medications are listed as you type your choice, and pick them, rather than typing more.

The only interaction is if you allow location services, as well as potentially accessing Passbook.
